Hambo Polska efter Theodor Freyland

Hello!
Another säckpipa tune from Småland! It's called Hambo Polska and it's from Theodor Freyland's manuscript, Jönköping, Småland. Jönköping is where my family is from, so I was very excited to find this tune!
Enjoy!

Älgknappen

Hello!
Another 8-note polska. This one is called Älgknappen, which translates as The Elk Button. There's a story behind that title I'm sure!
Enjoy!

Kontrabasharpapolskan

Hello!
A great tune, it's a kontrabasharpa tune, but fits so well on the säckpipa that how knows which version came first! So as well as the version on säckpipa I've included it on kontrabasharpa so you can see how it turns out on that instrument! The full title is Kontrabasharpapolskan efter Calle Svankvist. If you wanted to dance to this a bakmes would be appropriate! More about him later!
Enjoy!

Cadrill Kozaken

Hello!
I love to find tunes from my home county of Småland and this one is awesome! This is Cadrill Kozaken and it's from Carl-Gustaf Tullbergs manuscript (Högahult, Nöbbele), dated 1822.

Since doing the filming I took this tune to Halsway a couple of weeks ago and we decided that the best way to play it was to start slowly and then speed up until you're going like the clappers! I love this tune!
Enjoy!
:D

Gärdsbygubarnas Polska

Hello!
I love this tune, it rocks! We played this one at Halsway in 2018 and I learnt it in turn from the awesome Olle Gällmo.
Enjoy!
